Just my luck as a CIA agent I’d be the the middle of an OP, and my underwear would start riding up.  I’d go to adjust it and BLAM! shoot myself in the junk and blow my cover.

Hello my name is Mike, and I am addicted to bags.

That is how my introduction would go at group addictions counseling.

Next to guns and watches, bags are my next biggest interest.  I have all types and brands, ranging in size, material, and price, from very cheap up to several hundred dollars.

I recently received a carbon fiber airstream duffel bag from my site sponsor Ragged Edge.

The company makes all their own products right here in the U.S.A., in Clearwater Florida.  Refreshing, considering all of my other bags are made abroad.

No pictures or description can do the bag justice.  It is one of those products that you will never fully appreciate until you are able to handle, and use it.

It’s no wonder they offer a lifetime warranty on their products. Judging by the material used, the design of the bag, and the way it is constructed, I highly doubt that with even the most rigorous use there would ever be any damage inflicted that would require having to return it for repair.

The bag is made from carbon fiber sailcloth, it’s definitely not your average “cloth” though. The best way I can think of to describe the material, would be to say it’s like handling a really thick rain jacket.  This particular sailcloth also has the interesting quality of being partially translucent between the carbon fiber strip pattern.

Weird looking interior, Probably ostrich leather.

Converting your gear shift knob to such a setup does look cool, and would not hinder it’s function.  Probably not a great idea though if you ever were to get pulled over, or cross the border.

To be safe, id recommend against this modification. :P

About a week ago I wished for A More Interesting Biathlon… Well my wish was granted:

Best Line:

Not only is he using the wrong car, he is using the wrong gun. 22 is alright when you’re 9, but when you’re in a hurry you need one of these. A Heckler & Koch MP5 Machine Pistol.

Geardo

For those not familiar with the terminology…

Definitions:

Geardo – One who spends at least 50% of each paycheck (before taxes) on the latest & greatest gear, just to have the latest and greatest gear, regardless of whether or not that gear will actually help the wearer preform his/her duties.

FOB (Forward Operating Base) – A secured forward position that is used to support tactical operations. A FOB may or may not contain an airfield, hospital, or other facilities. – wiki

S.A.W. (Squad Automatic Weapon) – A weapon designed to give infantry squads or sections a compact and mobile source of suppressive fire. SAWs are usually equipped with a bipod for stabilization and fire the same cartridge as the assault rifles carried by other members of the unit.  The M249 SAW that is currently in use by the U.S. is getting ready to be replaced.  Rumor has it that the H&K IAR is the replacement, although I have heard this is false and they haven’t actually won the contract yet (they are just the front runner)… we will see.

ACU (Army Combat Uniform) – The current combat uniform worn by the U.S. Army.  Has a distinct new camouflage pattern. – wiki
